DVDs: It suffers from a lack of bounce.
Fogler is completely devoid of warmth or charm. We secretly root for Randy's opponents to smash him into submission, so he can suffer an inglorious death at the lips of Feng's blow dart-wielding assistant, Mahogany (Tyler). Aside from a brief fight sequence, Maggie Q is little more than eye candy and Hong gamely spouts his wise old coot's repertoire of muddled proverbs. Walken overacts without shame as the campy villain of the piece, ordering his underlings to "Kill them. We're missing Antiques Roadshow!"
DVD Extras: Balls Out: The Making Of Balls Of Fury featurette, Under The Balls: The Life Of A Ball Wrangler featurette, alternative ending, deleted scenes.
